Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Many patients treated for problematic wounds may be candidates for hyperbaric oxygen therapy, a treatment in which the patient breathes 100 percent oxygen inside a pressurized chamber for short periods of time. This therapy can be beneficial for treating wounds that are difficult to heal.

Therapy to promote healing

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is used to enhance healing of wounds, particularly those that are difficult-to-heal or infected.

During treatment, a patient lies in a special pressurized chamber of pure oxygen and breathes normally, which increases the amount of oxygen in the blood. Hillcrest Pryor’s doctors may use hyperbaric oxygen therapy to treat conditions such as:

  • Air or gas embolisms
  • Bone infections
  • Burns
  • Chronic wounds caused by diabetes, circulatory problems or many other conditions
  • Crush injuries and other traumatic injuries that compromise blood supply to tissues
  • Decompression sickness
  • Gangrene
  • Poisoning from carbon monoxide or cyanide
  • Pressure sores
  • Radiation treatment injuries or thermal burns
  • Refractory osteomyelitis
  • Skin grafts
  • Wounds that have not healed with other therapies, such as diabetic foot ulcers

Your doctor can determine whether this therapy is right for you. For more information, please call 918.824.7901.
